She had a blood alcohol level nearly three times the legal limit when she was arrested after running away from the scene.

“My family and I had hoped for a much stronger, longer sentence,” said Jim Kroiss, Joe’s father.

    What an absolute travesty she only got 12 years for her second murder. Hopefully someone beats her to death in prison.

  2. Cindi Kachnic says:

    This is the 2nd person she has killed in a dui crash besides having multiple arrests for DUI.

  3. Erin McCreary Agee says:

    again and again, people just wont learn. She only got 12 years and she has destroyed a family. Thee is no such thing as a drunk driving “accident” They are all 100% preventable.
